LEMON HONEY

2 large juicy lemons
50g Butter
1 Cup sugar
2 eggs beaten

Place rind and juice of the lemons in the top part of a double boiler with water simmering underneath. Add butter and sugar and stir until sugar is dissolved. Add well beaten eggs and stir gently for 10-15 minutes until egg incorporated and mixutre thickens. Be careful not to boil mixture or egg will set in clumps/strands. Pour into jars and refrigerate. Use as an alternative to jam, and makes a good filling for cakes or deserts.
